US President Donald Trump states that there is no deadline for China deal

 | 

Markets move to risk-off sentiment following news that President Trump stated there is no deadline on the trade deal with China. He told reporters that China is ready to do the deal now, but that it would be better to wait until after the 2020 election. Reserve Bank of Australia announced decision to keep a key interest rate on hold and traders anticipate the Bank of Canada will make the same decision at their meeting tomorrow.

Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.
